Main Question or Discussion Point

How did Jackson arrange his set of problems in this famous book Electrodynamics? I mean, does he move according to the course? Or the problems are mixed up?

The problems go with each chapter, and appear at the chapter ends.

My copies (2nd and 3rd edition) are autographed by JD Jackson!

Thank you for the reply. But I was asking that at the end of each chapter how are the problems arranged? I mean, if one is teaching the course, can s/he explain like the first 3 sections of chapter 2 let's say and give the students homework of the first exercises there? In other words, does his exercises follow up with his sections?

(I like the fact that they are autographed by him, one of the best books to study electrodynamics worldwide!)

No, I don't think that there is any sectional organization.
Does an instructor's guide exist?

The problems are listed in sort of the order of the chapter, but many of them go beyond the material in the chapter. When I taught from Jackson, I made up my own HW problems. Now I use a different text.

No actually, no instructor's guide is there. Whta I wanted to figure out is that in chapter 3, for the mixed boundary conditions section (3.13) what are its problems in the text? I just want to practice on that part but I can't seem to figure out what are the problems related just to this part.. I don't have time to go through all of them and so as to pick what I want, that's why I asked if they were sorted in some order.

Thank you guys.

If you had asked the question that way in the beginning I would have said "I don't know"!

I know that knowing the answer to that question was of a minute probability. That's why I went for asking a general question. Thanks.
